The rt2-to-rt3 dump script will not change the original
database - it just copies the ticket contents out to files.
However there are some complications in trying to run
different versions of RT on the same machine.  Be sure
to note the minimum perl and MySql versions you need
for 3.x and that you can't have different versions running
with mod_perl unless you have a different httpd instance.

There should be an option to the dump script to start at
a certain ticket number so when you want to catch the test
version up to the still-running old production copy you don't
have to start over.
