Package ships with corrupt mdb which causes the scriptupdater to fail

Package: Visual Scripting


h2. Procedure:
# Open the attached projected which has both the VS 1.7.7 package and entities 0.50.1-preview.2.

h2. Outcome:

APIUpdater encountered some issues and was not able to finish.

Mono.CompilerServices.SymbolWriter.MonoSymbolFileException: Symbol file `D:/GitRepos/ads/Library/PackageCache/com.unity.visualscripting@1.7.6/Editor/VisualScripting.Core/Dependencies/DotNetZip/Unity.VisualScripting.IonicZip.dll.mdb' does not match assembly{noformat}
We also should not be shipping mdb files, because things should be compiled with roslyn, not msc.

    Simple workaround for this is to remove the visual scripting module. Assuming of course you don't need it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I'm having this issue and it's made my project almost unusable.
