ASASSN-16jb: superhump period

   Josch Hambsch and Berto Monard have reported
observations.  The object started to show superhumps
on Aug. 25 and it now shows superhumps (stage B)
with a period of 0.06415(1) d.  The period of
stage A superhumps was 0.06514(3) d, which corresponds
to q=0.07.  Although the superhump period suggests
a period bouncer, the behavior has not been extreme.
