I'm planning to publish it to the fpGUI repository today.

The original AggPas author only released AggPas as a zip / tarball
archive.  There never was any public source code repository. The
original author also moved on, and created a commercial venture from
AggPas, now called CrossGL (Cross platform Graphics Library), so he
doesn't work on the original AggPas version any more.

Also, fpGUI can now use AggPas as the graphics library (instead of
XLib or GDI) - see the screenshot in the fpgui.development newsgroup.
Once fully tested, it will become the default graphics library for
fpGUI, so a copy of AggPas must be included with fpGUI to compile.

As for Lazarus including a copy of AggPas - I have no idea what was
the plans behind that. They will never use AggPas as a graphics
library for LCL, because it is not "native". Lazarus's AggPas package
is also not a default installed package in Lazarus IDE as far as I
know. So it seems the thinking was to supply an optional and more
powerful Canvas class, compared to the default LCL Canvas, for those
developers that need it in specialised projects.
