That's quite close. UUCP usually sends data files, optionally along with
a command, and this command happens to be rnews for news or rmail for
mail. Whether it's upload or download, does not matter, these terms do
not apply to UUCP. One machine has a transfer request for the other
machine (or, if one is a relay/"gateway", for further machines),
regardless of who is initializing the connection.

Why are you worried?
