The migration should be pretty straightforward. There is a wiki page on it:

http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/MySQLToPg

There are a number of methods that people have used for the migration. I would
probably use the dump/restore method and then create a second version using the
connect to both DBs at once and transfer the data. Then I would compare the
resulting DBs. They should be the same. :)
