The more modern pkgsearch package does not offer any way to search by authors, as far as I can tell.
I am not sure whether other repositories (TeXLive, for example) offer a simple way to search by authors. But as demonstrated by pacman this is doable via web scraping, but as scraping is inherently fragile ideally CRAN should offer the data in some structured format (JSON, XML, whatever). If we are wishing for stuff anyway, I would also like to add that it would be awesome to search not just using name but also ORCID.
