Comment (by desrosj):

 Replying to [comment:2 joyously]:
 > Shouldn't this ticket be on the editor, not the themes? Patterns
 supplied by core should just work for any theme. The theme shouldn't have
 to "keep up" and change styles for a new pattern. How could that possibly
 be sustainable?

 Patterns supplied by Core will work, but the editor cannot account for
 styles in themes that override Core block styling, (unless `!important` is
 used heavily, and that's not the right solution), and nor should they. The
 editor also cannot account for the aesthetics of every theme.

 Regardless of what changes are included in a release, every plugin and
 theme author should always be testing for bugs as new releases become
 available. It's possible this testing reveals a bug or improvement that
 can be made in the editor code. But that's what testing is for.

 This ticket is to test and verify that the block patterns will work
 correctly and look natural within each default bundled theme. Because
 these are the themes that have or will ship with WordPress by default, we
 have a responsibility to the user base to maintain these themes as best we
 can. But that's why there is a Bundled Theme component with maintainers.

 Based on @justinahinon's testing of Twenty Ten above, there are only a two
 patterns with issues. I expect this to be the case with each theme (one or
 two with an issue).
