Here's a gentle suggestion on how to more quickly (but narrowly) implement this
use case: 

   why not use Pippy to write a minimal activity that downloads the leases.sig
   file [e.g. with urllib2, wget, or curl], tests for mounted USB sticks,
   prompts the user if they're missing, and that copies the leases.sig file to
   the USB stick?

I think this might be a good way to go because 

   * it'll be faster than figuring out how to solve file management,

   * it doesn't depend on anyone else making changes, and

   * it may be of some educational value to people who want to understand how
     the system actually works and how they might automate it for themselves.
