# This script converts Firehose from old-style (pre-Sept 2008)
# to new-style (Sept 2008), this allows stories to be excluded
# from the mainpage, and appear in multiple sections just as
# stories were able to do on index utilizing story_topics_rendered.
# A new firehose_topics_rendered table is added as well as the nexuslist and offmainpage
# columns in firehose to track this information
# Script usage: convertFirehoseDBto200809 -u <virtuser>
