That's not completely correct. The mozilla foundation stopped
development of mozilla, so it won't even get security updates. Only
Firefox and Thunderbird are developed further (and maybe some day a
working calendering application, but I don't hold my breath there).

Seamonkey - while hosted at mozilla.org - is a project outside of the
mozilla foundation, done by developers who like the "all applications in
one" approach of mozilla.

But yes, you are correct: There's no mozilla anymore, only seamonkey.
And seamonkey is mozilla. Sort of.
