While googling using site-specific searches (trying to find out what glazou meant about “rainbow”) I quite by accident found http://directory.mozilla.org/, which redirects to http://www.dmoz.org/. What is it? Why is it there?

I believe that traces back to days of old.
Might not be a bad idea to theme it, and use dmoz as a foundation for a mozilla start page (default for mozilla users). Get them off to a good clean start.
There a wikipedia entry about dmoz, not sure how accurate it is, but for the most part it sounds correct from what I remember.
This came up in a staff meeting perhaps a year ago. We agreed to log how many people used the redirect with a view to disabling it eventually. Not sure what happened next. I’ll ask tonight.
Any answers on this?
I just know that, whatever it’s purpose is, it has Google’s support: http://www.google.com/dirhp
So what’s its status?
