I haven't investigated it thoroughly, but I do see a file .DOVR.;.SPOOL 8
written in C by Eliot Moss.

/* This program scans the directory .DOVR. for files whose
first name starts with A-Z, and attempts to send them to the
DOVER.  If they are not PRESS files, or if they are successfully
transmitted, they are deleted.  It writes a log into
.DOVR.;YYMMDD %LOG where YYMMDD is the year, month and day.
It will keep N log files, where N is a compile time parameter.

When sending to the DOVER, the spooler waits until Spruce is
free before sending another file.
