ASASSN-14ac: new WZ Sge-type dwarf nova

   Pavol A. Dubovsky has reported new observations.
The most recent data (since Feb. 3) clearly show
ordinary superhumps.  The mean period is 0.05889(4) d
and the amplitude is 0.13 mag.
Re-analysis of the earlier data suggested a period
of 0.05851(2) d, which can be considered as early
superhumps although the full amplitude was only 0.01 mag.
If this period indeed reflects the early superhumps,
the small fractional superhump excess may suggest
a period bouncer.  Further observations are encouraged.
