this is true. I’m very sorry that I didn’t answer you when you sent this
e-mail. Although I’ve been more busy than usual during the last months,
I recognize that this is no proper excuse for answering with a delay of
four months. :-(

Yes, I’ve received it from the previous maintainer Dominique Unruh. As
Frank Küster has already recognized, it is in the source code
repository. Note that the URL of this repo has changed today. It’s now

    <http://darcs.wolfgang.jeltsch.info/tex/unicode/>  .

So ucs.dtx will go to CTAN when I’ll finally release an updated version
of the unicode package (which I really should do soon).

Sorry for this. This is fixed now.
