Hello partners.

I am currently at Goania, Brasil to participate on a coop-op about art 
and technology. The data about is in:

Projeto selecionado -- Res#6 Programa de Residência Artística e Científica

res#6: O Bom Compartilhar - primeiro encontro com os residentes

Res#6: Apresentação dos Residentes Juan Carlos León e Quiliro Ordóñez 

It is basically a device which will be publicly available for anybody to 
upload and download works via USB memory for using in events or the 
sort. No keyboard. No moniitor. Nothing but an ethernet port connected 
to the Internet, some leds and two USB ports.

The device should, upon detection of a USB memory stick plugged into one 
of the USB ports, copy a folder from the device to the USB memory. If 
the USB memory stick is detected on the other USB port, the device 
should work the other way around; it should copy a folder from the USB 
memory to the device. After any of these two operations is completed, 
the USB memory should be unmounted and a led should flash until the USB 
memory is detached. This is managed through a web server.

I have made the web administration interface. And I have found 
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Execute_on_USB_insert . It says: 
"Add the following line to your udev USB mount rule (Modify to fit your 
configuration)". Would someone please tell me if I am correct in 
assuming that the the udev USB mount rule is in Is 
/etc/udev/rules.d/90-automounter.rules ?

Saludos libres,
