0042775: ant package.core is tied to mercurial and cannot be used with ob source in git
The ant package.core command can be used to create a obx file for core. However it is doing 'hg archive' as main command to prepare the files so cannot be used when sources are managed using git.

Before changing code probably would need to specify what exactly the goal of the task is as currently it is not used and works differently than package.module.

Clone openbravo erp sources from git and run ant package.core

- ant package.module has some code (in ExtractModule) specific to module_id=0 but not fully working
- ant package.core does use 'hg archive' and not files from working copy (in contrast to ant package.module)
- ant package.core does have 2 options on how to set ad_module.xml version field
  a.) (on by default) 'hg id -n' short commit it from hg repo
  b.) read from ad_module.xml (non default)
- In contrast ant package.module does not modify version but just creates obx file itself. It could make sense to simplify and package.core to do the same
- rm team currently does not use package.core but creates zip file for core manually but would like to use some more standard solution
- Ideally modified package.core would work needing install.source or prior compilation if possible

fixed ISSUE-42775: Remove ant task package.core (mercurial only and unused)

That task tied to mercurial revision control (by using hg id & hg
archive, so for upcoming git migration it will stop working).
Apart it is not used by Openbravo to prepare releases so not really

Instead of rewriting it with git or hg & git logic lets remove it.
