I think this can be solved by clarifying what upstream is.
archlinux foo package has foo.org as upstream
archlinux32 uses archlinux foo package as base , upstream = archlinux
manjaro32 uses archlinux32 package as base , upstream = archlinux32
say foo is at version 8.2.5
archlinux has 8.2.5-2
archlinux32 then uses 8.2.5.arch.2 as pkgver and adds 3 as their pkgrel
manjaro32 uses 184.108.40.206.arch.2.arch32.3 as pkgver and their own pkgrel.
This shows the chain between downstream and all upstreams .
