I've looked at both packages and I don't see a reason why they should
be kept in AUR at all.

The xf86-video-sis671 package looks almost identical to the
xf86-video-sisimedia in [extra]. It even uses the same sources. If
there's a problem with the xf86-video-sisimedia you should rather post
a bug report (patches are welcome) instead of creating a new package
in AUR.

As far as it goes, xf86-sis-m671 seems to be based on the same
sources. Also it uses a (dead) git repository so it's name is wrong
too (it should have -git suffix).
