remove uploaded files

Bengfort requested to merge rm-media into main

Allowing to upload files to the study registration has two major drawbacks:

  • Complicated deployment: We need to provide a file storage, including backup.
  • Redundant: There is already a storage folder. Having some files uploaded to the web app and others in the folder (or duplicating them in both locations) is confusing.

For this reason I propose to remove file uploads. The only place where this is used is for ethics applications and their approvals.

The only downside I see is that there is not much left of the ethics app after this. Maybe we should remove it completely? Then again, the ethics board is used in search and we also might at some point want to use the information that the ethics application has been approved.
