The Open Directory Project http://dmoz.org has been one of the most
faithful RDF user, the category structure and content being available as
RDF dump for years now.

In the framework of OWL promotion, I've pushed on dmoz internal forum the
idea of an OWL version of the dmoz ontology. Note that would be important
both by size (over 400.000 categories) and outreach of this ontology, since
dmoz RDF dump is used by most Web directories including Google's and many

I will keep the group aware of how this idea is welcome.
