OT J230425.8+062546: period decrease

   Shiokawa-san has reported further observations.  The data apparently
showed a decrease in the superhump period.  The decrease started on Jan. 10
and the period (assuming the adopted alias) since then has been 0.06244(4) d.
This decrease may have been a result of a stage B-C transition; the increase
in the superhump amplitude may be interpreted as the emergence of stage C
superhumps.  Continued observations are encouraged.
