The Kubernetes Package Manager
https://helm.sh/ (a yaml based package manager used to tell k8s how to run your service)
CLI tool for linting and testing Helm charts
When a dev creates a PR to the gitops repo, have Jenkins/github actions/gitlab/etc checkout his branch and try to install the manifest/helm chart on your dev kubernetes cluster. Then have it comment back on the PR if it succeeded or not, simple as that. Helm also has chart-testing utilities for CI, but in that case your CI would have to install crossplane on some Kind cluster and that's a bit tricky, so better just use your already existing dev cluster configured with crossplane and the right permissions.
