    Typically the analysts working the catalog will reserve the catalog
    numbers as soon a launch goes.  They usually reserve enough for all
    the expected pieces and if there are questions they will reserve more
    than they think they need.  This ensures that there is enough room to
    give all the pieces from a launch sequential numbers.  If another
    launch goes while the numbers for the previous one are still reserved
    the new launch will start numbering after it.
    However, the new catalog items won't actually be published until they
    have enough data to get a good element set.  That may take a few days
    depending on how the separation goes and tracking ability.
