The Atari SIG 'Programming Project' was announced by the Atari SIGOps:

This programming project is an open participating project for 
programmers on the 8 bit or 16 bit machines.  If you don't program,
you can still participate by offering suggestions and possibly
beta tests to programmers.  The idea is to:

1> Put more public domain or free-ware programs in the Atari community.
   Of course, us 8 bitters would be very happy to see this!
2> Help the Atari SIG expand its boundaries by informing Atarians on
   its existance (see below)
3> Aid the Revolution...There's not really any project scheduled in
   the revolution for this, but there are several "free" events
   scheduled where one can pretty much do his or her own thing...This
   can be one of them.

Basically the whole idea is for you programmers to write original
programs such as games, applications, utillities, etc. for these
machines in any language!   Upon completion the SIGOPS will review it.

Upon passing the review, we ask that you insert an ad for the
Atari SIG and the Revolution...exactly what the ad will say will be
determined at a later date....a starting and ending date will also
be determined later....We are currently looking for programmers at
this time and people with ideas...
