What is this about

A Matrix instance can publish a directory, a list of rooms that instance wants to highlight.

The gnome.org directory is the default directory for people with accounts on the GNOME homeserver (have a Matrix ID ending with :gnome.org)

Users from other instances (for example with a MatrixID ending with :matrix.org) can browse GNOME.org’s directory too!
