This allows for source package version skew on a per arch level. In the worst case, each non-tier1 arch could have a different source package version when compared to tier1 and all of the other non-tier1 arches.

To have the least possibility for source package version skew, the non-tier1 arches should branch off of tier1-testing instead of tier1-unstable.
