Successfully implementing PBE and an associated reuse effort is about more than just identifying and building patterns. We need to eliminate friction and hurdles that prevent patterns from being consumed effectively and efficiently. In eliminating these hurdles, some of the questions that we need to answer include these:
• How do we package patterns to support consumption and reuse?
• How do we make the patterns available to others so that they are easy to find and work with?
• How do we make the patterns available in such a way that they are easy to support when new versions need to be made available?
• What if searching for a pattern fails to turn up relevant results or turns up irrelevant ones?
• Once a pattern ...
