Pattern Repositories

Microsoft’s recent releast of various patterns and processes (download the design patterns) is one of many pattern repositories people and (more often)  organizations have been making public.  I think this is one of the most beautiful frontiers of modern data-sharing.

Some of these repositories are intended as singular repositories to eventually encompass all patterns influencing developers or architects… here is an old-school collection of flat patterns, for instance.  Of course merging different repositories is very hard when there is no obvious classification or naming scheme, and when the presentation of patterns varies so widely from one person or group to another.

Individual traditional architects have also been releasing their own pattern languages and repositories.  Christopher Alexander, my hat is off to you, as usual.
