Galaga For Atari 2600

From the Atari Age forums:

"So I'm wondering if Galaga was ever officially ported to the Atari 2600? I know Galaxian was and is pretty much the base code for Galaga, but I was thinking tonight it would be awesome to play Galaga on the Atari 2600.  If it wasn't officially ported to the 2600, is there a homebrew or Galaxian hack/modification for Galaga out there? If so, I want to get it and if not, I'm thinking this would be an awesome game to get coded up."

And the answer:

"As far as I know, there is no Galaga for the 2600. Although, there is one for the 7800."

But later:

"It does appear on the CX master list (CX26116). It was never finished, the programmer told me that he only did preliminary work on it (only a few test screens)."
