It seems to me that such format conversions are better handled by
fontforge  (there is need for manual intervention too). Also new
generation TeX engines can make use of TrueType/OpenType fonts. So do we
still need ttf2pt1 or ttf2pt1-chinese?

Apparently the other orphaned packages are fonts and input-related items.

IIRC Arne had adopted and is maintaining some of Anthony's packages.
Maybe he (or someone else in the team with Chinese skills) could look
into it?
