My understanding of SIGs is that they're primarily focused on requirements gathering and communication for their area of interest and then trying to drive corresponding changes into code that is actually owned/maintained by other teams like nova. I don't know of any SIG producing anything like what is produced/maintained by PowerVMStackers. Scrolling through the list of current SIGs [1], none of them sound like they're writing a lot of code that they own/maintain. Writing code that goes into nova, etc. sure, but not that they own/maintain independently. Maybe I'm just uninformed?

You can find the reference list of repositories attached to SIGs at:

https://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/governance/tree/reference/sigs-repos.yaml

Most of those maintain documentation repos (and land their code into 
existing repositories). Only the Security SIG currently maintains code 
repos.
