Activate should be Redeem

Description of problem:
The terminology for activating a DELL machine was recently changed in the subscription-manager-cli from "activate" to "redeem".  This same change should be made in the subscription-manager-gui

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-gnome

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add the following to /etc/candlepin/candlepin.conf on your on premises candlepin server and restart candlepin
candlepin.subscription.activation.debug_prefix = redemption

2. register using using --name=redemption90210
subscription-manager register --username=testuser1 --password=password --org=admin --name=redemption90210

3. start subscription-manager-gui
Actual results:
see attached screenshot

Expected results:

Fixed in master at 34d388faaf2124edf5036e74ca49cdd8db7d5250 (merge is at 57441fbd6a287c84714f2e37d836621484c4f02e). 

One question, I get a permission denied when I do this. Is this another bug?
