I received the following when trying to upload a set of RPMs that included SRPMS
as well:

Connecting to https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/XP
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/rhn_package_manager", line 29, in ?
  File "/var/www/rhns/PackageManager/rhn_package_manager.py", line 92, in main
  File "/var/www/rhns/PackageManager/uploadLib.py", line 230, in uploadHeaders
    verbose=self.options.verbose, nosig=self.options.nosig)
  File "/var/www/rhns/PackageManager/uploadLib.py", line 352, in _processBatch
  File "/var/www/rhns/PackageManager/uploadLib.py", line 310, in _processFile
    h = get_header(None, f.fileno(), source)
  File "/var/www/rhns/PackageManager/uploadLib.py", line 509, in get_header
    raise UploadError("Unexpected RPM package type")
PackageManager.uploadLib.UploadError: Unexpected RPM package type

It would be nice if this exception spit out a "hey! you're trying to upload
SRPMS, but you didn't use the right options." message so that I would what to do
about it.

What would really be nice is if the tool simply determined what kind of RPM was
being uploaded and simply changed its behaviour on the fly.

Better error messages would be nice as well.

misa's tool... assigning to him.
