Is there a good definition of the GAF format used by the program vg ?

Is this actually GFA format, as perhaps alluded to in this blogpost (not clear) ? https://ekg.github.io/2019/07/09/Untangling-graphical-pangenomics

I would strongly suggest avoiding creating a rival GAF format in bioinformatics, since if you google it you'll find GO annotation file format (see below).

GO Annotation File (GAF) format - Gene Ontology

Thanks

To answer my own question, here is a good review page by Heng Li. It mentions PAF, GAF, GFA and rGFA.

Yes, it is the GAF as defined on that page that vg outputs. Note that it currently writes the <orientIntv> (as opposed to <stableIntv>) coordinates.
