I am on Ubuntu 16.04. I use apt-get a lot to install packages/libraries for development, but the problem is a lot of the libraries in apt-get is very out of date (just to name a few, cmake, glog ... etc), hence I have to build them from source to get the up to date libaries. If I want to contribute to Apt to upgrade some of the outdated packages, where should I go to?
The equivalent of apt-get on windows vcpkg, allows us to submit pull requests to update and add libraries. Hence the libraries on vcpkg is very up to date and there is minimal need to build libraries from source in windows.
