NEW NUMBERINGS OF SHORT-PERIOD COMETS
     Further to CBET 4802, the following permanent numbers have been
assigned to short-period comets based upon their being securely observed
at multiple returns to perihelion.  Note that the identification of comets
P/2013 J4 (PANSTARRS) and P/2019 Y2 (Fuls) as the same object on CBET 4792
has led to the renaming of this comet as 403P/PANSTARRS-Fuls.
