Does there exist a reference to help determine when a particular newspaper went to press?

Many papers employ stars somewhere in the masthead to indicate a revision or later printing of that day's edition. The New York Times, it seems, uses dots.
In general, do more stars or dots indicate a later or earlier edition? Are there exceptions to this rule? And has anyone come across an aggregator of these indicators? And do they have a name? Surely this must be someone's obsession.
