We might see the label as another attribute of a pattern, i.e. the categorisation of the pattern as 'People Pattern', 'People Antipattern', etc. So would it be worth adding Categories (Labels) to the above list?

We might consider adding tags to help those searching outside the wiki to find content within a wiki.

Those attributes have some useful metadata, but why not, for the core description, follow Alexander's “Context, Problem, Solution”? Those are pretty clear: what's my requirement (problem), what assumptions are being made about the environment (context), and what do I do (solution).

Currently all that information seems to be lumped under either “summary” or “usage.” Not only is the Alexander structure not there, but it's tough for me to tell how those two are supposed to be different.

I recognize I'm being a bit of an emulatorReplicator in posting this as a comment rather than just editing, but I haven't been in here long enough to have a good feel for the impact to what's already here.

Hmm; now that I look, the page hasn't been touched in 8 months. Is anyone watching?
