It is feasible and there are plenty of hits using google with very similar questions.  It
would be useful if you could say what your platform is (or will be if you plan on upgrading
the hardware also).

I suggest you start with the release notes for the 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 [1] versions which should
cover most of the gotchas but in theory a current server should be able to just pick up the
old repositories and serve them.  However, I would guess that a 1.4 to 1.7 upgrade would benefit
from a dump / load cycle to make use of the latest repository structure features (as well
as giving you a handy dump file backup of the pre-upgrade repositories).

Perhaps you can provide more info and ask some more specific questions?
