What should I be looking for in my log files to see if and when dmoz visited my site?

There isn't a way to tell if they visited......

I remember seeing a referral URL from dmoz that was password protected, not long after submitting.

Of course they may or may not send a referral, depending on browser settings, etc.

I believe it shows up as something with
dmoz.org/editors/editurl.cgi?url=

Some ODP editors -- myself included -- use a separate browser to review sites, copy/pasting the URL into the second browser.

It will all depend on how the editors choose to review the site. Sometimes I type the URL into a new window, sometimes I use the EDIT links to open the site I'm editing in a new window. For me it depends on how many windows I've got open at the time, although I do try and make a habit of clicking through to let those with access to their log files know I have looked at their site.

Anyway, I've just checked with one of my sites and this is the type of link that you will get when an editor uses the links to review your site:
[dmoz.org...]
