Oneiric: requestbackport missing?

Asked by Rob Hills

The Ubuntu Backports Wiki ( says:

"The Ubuntu Backporters team recommends using the requestbackport tool in the ubuntu-dev-tools package to file backport requests"

I have installed ubuntu-dev-tools package (on an Oneiric system). However, I can't find the requestbackport tool, and it's not mentioned in the package info in the Ubuntu Software Centre. Is the Wiki out of sync with the package, or am I missing something really obvious here?
