Did you run apt-get update or aptitude update after you added the backports to your sources.list ?

request-tracker is available on my system where backports are enabled:

petrus@tank:~$ aptitude search request-tracker
p   request-tracker3.6        - Extensible trouble-ticket tracking system
p   request-tracker3.8        - extensible trouble-ticket tracking system
