ASASSN-15gq: superhump period

   Tonny Vanmunster and Ian Miller have supplied observations.
Although the reported superhumps were visible, the profile
is unusual.  If the basic period is 0.0653(2) d, the profile
is strongly doubly humped.  There appears to be a possibility
of half of this period.  Further observations are encouraged.
