I don't, and indeed it sounds like a problem.

Yep, it's in TL in texmf-dist/doc/latex/ucs, or on CTAN at:


The modifications do not add any restriction to the LPPL, at first glance, so
they are not a problem at all.

I found that http://www.unruh.de/DniQ/ redirects to http://www.cs.ut.ee/~unruh/
which has contact information about Dominique Unruh, ucs.sty's author. The page
looks fairly up-to-date so I assume the contact info is valid.

Would you like to contact him about the missing ucs.dtx? If you do, please keep
us informed.
