If you have mirrored the repo locally you can just use find and grep, ie:

find $REPO_ROOT -maxdepth 3 -mindepth 3 -name "README" | xargs grep -i searchterm

I think some of the SBO package management tools might also have a function built in to search in READMEs. sboui (which I wrote) has it at least.

   Is there a list of packages with the descriptive contents of their README
files? It would be useful to know what's available since it's difficult to
look for a tool without knowing its name. Has anyone tried extracting this
from the repository?
