Hi,

OntologyDesignPatterns.org is indeed the place to discuss ontology 
patterns. It's also good to know which patterns are useful in practice, 
and linked-data vocab patterns are used in vocabs that are themselves 
effectively used to describe data. The "known uses" field is actually 
empty for most patterns on the ODP portal, this should evolve as 
vocabularies are designed using patterns. Let's explicit links between 
the two efforts!

Cheers,
François
