OK, I was confused by the viewvc interface, that doesn't show big
directory listings on a single page, but breaks it into two. I've
found trunk/Master/texmf-dist/tex/latex/ucs/, which *also* does not
On the other hand, the comments in the files point to
http://www.unruh.de/DniQ/latex/unicode/, which is an HTTP redirect to
http://wolfgang.jeltsch.info/software/latex-unicode/, which is a 404.
So I'm out of ideas how to find the "real" sources. Do you know?
It is also worrying that the files say:
%% This program is provided under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public
%% License with some modifications.
%% See the file LICENSE (http://www.unruh.de/DniQ/latex/unicode/content/LICENSE)
%% for information.
I can't find that file, and /usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra does
not contain licensing information for it (I grepped for "ucs" and
"unicode" and did not find anything). So how do we know whether it is
DFSG-free software? What are the "some modifications" above?
