I finally found back this page and updated the links therein:


It contains:
Upgrading the GRASS database from older to recent GRASS versions
1.1 Migrating from GRASS 4 to GRASS 5
1.2 Migrating from GRASS 4 to GRASS 6
1.3 Migrating from GRASS 5 to GRASS 6
1.4 Migrating from GRASS 6 to GRASS 7

That should be doable, since conversion tools are included.

I would expect that the raster maps from GRASS GIS 5 can be opened in
any later version without problems.
If not, please send the error message.
