ambroff and toddpalino Add demote command (#91)
* Add demote command.

* More complete.

* Fixed flake8 errors for kafka/tools/assigner/actions/

The flake8 errors were part of the reason why Travis build was failing for PR #91 for linkedin/kafka-tools. The other factor was tox running into an upstream python bug [1] for which PR #94 has been raised. I confirmed that after these 2 factors were eliminated, the build passes [2].

Kafka Tools

This repository is a collection of tools for working with Apache Kafka.

The Site Reliability team for Kafka at LinkedIn has built these over time in order to make managing Kafka a little bit easier. Our intention is to add to this repository as more tools are developed.

We welcome additions and modifications that make managing Kafka better for all!
