I swear I’ve seen a “game jam” before. Is this a new one?

Seems to be a new one. Havent seen one focused around Foss/Libre software yet. But gamejams are a thing, yes.

Maybe you are thinking of openjam? Though that one allows proprietary tools and engines like unity.

There was one on irc (freenode??) with the same name I guess? But this is a new one. Quote:

Sorry, there hasn’t been a jam yet! The first one will be held on December 1st, 2020

The openjam people are using discord and itch.io, two proprietary and in case of discrod terrible services and thats why this one was created afaik.
