[Wikimedia-l] dmoz.org
I see dmoz.org is going offline in few days after a couple decades. It is a
community-written project. Will it be absorbed into wikidata? Sort of a
snapshot-in-time of the web. Get it while you can, at http://rdf.dmoz.org/

Hoi,
It is not going to be absorbed in Wikidata. We did not even do that for
Freebase to my regret.
Thanks,
GerardM

I wonder if there's a lesson for other knowledge projects here ...

?I see you predict the future. Anyway, I assume the people on this list
are often the kind of people who would want to squirel away their own
private copy, while they can. I know I have.?

Gah really :-( DMOZ was super useful for dealing with linkspam on
Wikipedia. Would often just link to them for the external links and allow
them to take care of the issues.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] dmoz.org [ In reply to ]
IMO this is something we should absorb into the WMF family of sites. Should
not be too hard to format as a wiki. Not sure how big their community is.
Anyone have any idea?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] dmoz.org [ In reply to ]
It might be as well to understand why ODP folded and whether there is
likely to be volunteer effort available for its continuation before
spending time effort and money on reconstituting it as a WMF project.

I guess.
