today I looked at gap. Since there were many whitespace changes, I found
it a bit difficult to review, and copied only the most relevant/easiest
parts of your commit. In particular I did not move to gexps, which could
be done in a separate patch. So far I also did not apply the part for
making the build reproducible, which could be done in yet another patch.

Yes, there is an ongoing effort in GAP to clarify the license situation,
with apparently a lot of progress in this release. I have added (hopefully)
all packages with a free license and which do not require additional inputs.

We could go further; for instance add ZeroQMInterface (which requires
zeromq) and dependent packages, CddInterface (which I suppose requires
cddlib) and then NConvex, but I am a bit weary of adding dependencies,
even more so since we do not seem to have GAP users in Guix who could
give us feedback. It would be more motivating with users who confirm that
the packages do not only load, but actually work as expected...
