the user shouldn't have to specify the file size when uploading chunks
Currently, the workflow to upload a file to a repository is the following:
1. call content_uploads/create with file size and repo_id
2. call content_uploads/update in a loop with the content_upload_id, the actual chunk content, the offset of the chunk and the file size
3. call repositories/import_uploads
4. call content_uploads/destroy
I find the requirement to pass the file size in every chunk upload confusing. I've provided it already when I created the upload in step1, so I'd expect Katello to just reuse that value (it won't change anyways).

The upload chunk is an update call on the upload api in pulp3 with upload_href which takes a content_range(offset, offset + actual_chunk_size - 1, size) param as required value which needs to know the size of the file. I couldn't think of any workarounds to this other than querying the pulp api for size on upload or keeping some sort of db in katello.
