Support tasks on .NET Core #253

MSBuild 15 (VS 2017) can run on .NET Framework and .NET Core (building on Linux and Windows). It would be nice to port the tasks here to support running on .NET Core. This will anyone using the new Microsoft.NET.Sdk to keep using the tasks provided by MSBuildTasks.

Happy to provide guidance on this one as this is a fairly new thing.

Any guidance on how to do this would be great.

I wrote a blog post a while ago showing how to make tasks work on regular MSBuild and MSBuild for .NET Core. Hope it helps.

perfect, i'll get this updated to that format. some tasks may have to be dropped for core, but most should work.

Hi, I've read the blog post but still don't get do you have plans to migrate to Core.

In the blog you suggest to reference MSBuild this way:

<PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Build.Framework" Version="15.1.1012" />
<PackageReference Include="Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core" Version="15.1.1012" />

and MSBuild.Community.Tasks.csproj references it this way:

<Reference Include="Microsoft.Build.Framework" />
<Reference Include="Microsoft.Build.Utilities.v4.0" />

So it's clearly not migrated yet.
