    Helm Vault chart development testing

    If you are using Vault for storing secrets, it is desirable to have a different Vault for testing, CI and development. Having to setup an alternate production-grade Vault can be just not worth it (specially for volatile environments)

    When the patch is small is a very convenient way of patching it but as the patch grows it becomes less convenient
