I see Dmoz sometimes do not updates its data for 1-2 months. For example today it is still using 25 April data.
After Dmoz updates Google Directory its inmediatly updated? Or Google Directory is only updated 5-6 times at year?
What I´m thinking is that if Dmoz updates for Example in 2 Months, and Google refresh this update in 1-2 Months more... a new site listed in Dmoz may have to wait up to 3-4 months to get listed in Google Directory. It´s that correct?

dmoz produces an RDF file from time to time (usually weekly but maybe currently affected by the hardware upgrades going on there). Whenever Google decides to pick up the new RDF and incorporate it into an update then the Google Directory updates. However, the current Google update schedule is impossible to interpret, so you just have to wait and see. If you're in dmoz then you'll eventually make it to Google. :)
Just to clarify, dmoz/ODP is completely independent of Google and has no influence on when, how or if Google decides to update its directory.
