When does the Supreme Court order publication?

Eagle-eyed reader Kent Qian points out this Cal Supreme Court docket from last month where the Court ordered publication of an Appellate Division deciosion originally not published (opinion here). The recent statistics report (at Figure 23, pp. 14-15) shows trends and data for depublication orders (see also this ungrammatical line on page xvi: "The Supreme Court ordered 1 Court of Appeal opinions depublished in this fiscal year.") -- but the report does not seem to address publication orders at all. If anyone has insight into publication order statistics, please pass them along!

The opposite of an eraser.
