Deprecation/Removal: edx-platform asset processing in Paver

Hi folks :wave:

When the replacement is complete, these migration guides can be used:

Heads up! I have just updated the DEPR issue with a couple Django settings that will also be removed: JS_ENV_EXTRA_CONFIG and WEBPACK_CONFIG_PATH. I also extended the comment period to Monday, April 3rd.
