      Description

      See mailing list thread: https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/85a715681471c774821d76a90ec288943eca1a4bb0a267ba299d2eb3@%3Cdev.cordova.apache.org%3E

      My proposal is for cordova-ios to drop support for Xcode 6 with the xcrun
      packaging, and start using xcodebuild for archiving and generating the IPA.
      I suppose that would have to wait for a major version bump of cordova-ios,
      unless we detected the Xcode version and kept the old code around
      conditionally.

      As part of packaging, we would need to generate a exportOptions.plist file,
      indicating what type of build to package (development, enterprise, ad-hoc,
      or app-store). I'd suggest we add a "packageType" or "buildType" field to
      build.json for specifying this value (with a default of development).
