I see them in the context of Usenet via UUCP, so rnews.
The best that I can tell is that they are simply the messages that need
to be sent written into a single file that is then transferred via some
mechanism, ftp being a common one.
It looks like it might be the output of nntpsend or send-nntp. Or
perhaps output of downstream / related UUCP commands.
I often see it mentioned in close proximity of DNews.
