It appears that bz 729364 has been resolved; therefore, I wasn't able to reproduce the issue as initially reported.

I did, however, make some modifications to improve the error reporting for manifest uploads.  The change is basically to parse the errors that come from Candlepin and include them in the error notice to the user.

For example, 

rather than generate:

"There was a format error with your Subscription Manifest"


"Subscription manifest upload for provider 'Red Hat' failed.
Reason: Import is older than existing data"
