Scott, you've asked this question on this list at least twice before and were advised [1] [2] that you need to write:

master_sites sourceforge:assp

When you write "master_sites sourceforge" like you did, that expands to "master_sites sourceforge:${name}" which expands to "master_sites sourceforge:ASSP", but you'll note that the directory name in the SourceForge URLs is "assp" not "ASSP". Case matters.

To get a successful download, I also had to change the version to I can find no version on the download site. If you believe there should be one, ask the developer.
