Where is btrfs-convert

Asked by Sebastian Unger on 2018-09-06

According to many sources on the internet, not the least of which is the btrfs main home page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Btrfs#In-place_conversion_from_ext2/3/4_and_reiserfs), there should be a tool btrfs-convert. It existed in xenial, but in bionic the package btrfs-progs only contains its man page but not the executable.

Does anybody know whether it has moved into a separate package or what happened to it? Is this simply a bug that should be reported?

Sorry, the link I gave was to wikipedia, not the BTRFS wiki. However, the latter also has information on that tool (see below) and no mention of it being discontinued or anything.
