    [SPARK-17418] Prevent kinesis-asl-assembly artifacts from being published

    This patch updates the `kinesis-asl-assembly` build to prevent that module 
from being published as part of Maven releases and snapshot builds.
    The `kinesis-asl-assembly` includes the Kinesis Client Library (KCL) and 
Kinesis Producer Library (KPL), both of which are licensed under the Amazon 
Software License and are therefore prohibited from being distributed in Apache 
    While we clearly cannot publish the assembly, it is not clear whether we 
also need to stop publishing the `spark-kinesis-asl` library (which only 
depends on / links with the KCL / KPL but whose artifacts do not include code 
or binaries from those projects). Pending a resolution on that larger question, 
this patch only removes the publishing of the assembly.
