If some packages have "no home" but are deemed useful, it might be
interesting to import them in e.g. gnustep-nonfsf or GAP and merge the
patches in or maybe even just in github to give them a home, if they are
apps of "general".

I've reached out to David privately about some projects from 'gsimageapps' on gna.

If there was no work on them since 2017-02, we can rescue their history in full from:

I see you package Jishyo. Does it "work" for you? E.g. search for egg.

Rob Burns imported it into GAP a while ago and it received a couple of
build patches, but it doesn't work for me and Rob "disappeared" so no
further work was done. Maybe you have patches to share? Look up in the
dictionary generates an NSLog but no user output in the window.

I also observed Waiho, an FTP client whose webpage does not mention any work since 2002.
