As is evident from its empty tag-wiki, the tag patterns does not convey much info on its own.
- Questions tagged with it usually refer to either design-patterns or pattern-matching.
- There are a couple of other minor xxxx-pattern tags specific to certain frameworks/libraries.
At the moment, there are 1035 questions (its synonymous tags have >15K).
Should we (may I) start re-tagging them and burn the patterns tag?...
