Bringing Gateway API for Mesh to Kuma

The release of Kuma 2.3 brings experimental support for GAMMA (Gateway API for Mesh Management and Administration) resources. Kuma has long supported Gateway API with the built-in gateway for ingress traffic but with GAMMA support, users can specify how to route and modify in-mesh traffic using the well-known HTTPRoute resource from Gateway API. Gateway API is a project focused on improving the APIs around networking between services in Kubernetes clusters.
