0042577: Logs older than 30 days are not removed during log rotation
Using the default Openbravo log4j configuration, during rollover log files are limited to max 30 files, but this limitation applies only during a single day. Logs from previous days are not removed and the number of log files can grow indefinitely.
Using an Openbravo instance with the default log4j configuration that generates log files for more than 30 days, check that there are more than 30 files and older logs are not removed when creating new log files.
Add a <Delete/> rule in log4j-web.xml that determines that files older than 30 days ago should be removed.
No tags attached.

Fixed BUG-42577: Adding remove log archive policy to prevent indefinite growth.

Using current log4j config, only files under the same period of time are limited
(i.e. when logfile is bigger than 100MB, there can be max 30 log archives for the
same day).

The new rule added applies to log archives with the format openbravo-*.log.gz and
will remove the oldest archive until there are max 30 files. This process will be
performed every time a log rollover occurs.

This commit also adds a build validation step that overrides the current config
with the updated one _only_ if its a exact copy of the previous default config.
