[SOLVED] Understanding up/downstream [resolved]

I have a bit of a struggle to address a Bug I found and might have annoyed some (at least one) software developers.
As I understand it, Devuan is using mostly Debian packages.
So any package coming from Debian to Devuan is called "downstream"?

Any Bug reported with Devuan, which has its root in the debian package is to be reported by the devuan maintainer "upstrem" to Debian?

Is that the right understanding?

perfectly explained here:

Summary: there are only devuan packages when debian packages need to be "de-systemd-ed", which are very few.
(for completion: the mentioned package in the other thread does not fall into that category)
