Story #5598: [Epic] Long-Term To-Do for pulp-operator
Container CI testing shouldn't install packages onto the pulp-api container
Currently in order to do CI testing, plugin-template installs RPM and python packages into the pulp-api container.
This has 3 problems:
1. It is brittle. If pulp-api is restarted, they are lost.
2. It means the container image is being modified; which could possibly invalidate tests.
3. It is probably not the correct design pattern.
This task is to reach the correct design pattern, and implement it.
A possible alternative pattern is running tests from a separate sidecar container in the same pod.
