Still, what does it do to make discovery easier?

Just by using clib search [package-name]. Sure, you could Google search it, but, it might not come up.

But you still need to know about the library to do that, so it’s more of a “Can I install this through CLibs?” thing.

Sure. If you want to, Google can be a great place to find certain libraries and for others, it might not be.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to use Google for this purpose, it's just that CLibs can offer another channel for finding useful libraries.

Now you’re basically just repeating yourself.

Sorry, but that's all I have to say in this discussion. Use Google if you want and CLibs for an extra avenue for finding libraries.
