I think the VCF file for the latest NA12878 data (3rd link) has an error:
##INFO=<ID=isPolymorphic,Number=1,Type=Flag,Description="Sites that are polymorphic in the CEPH1493 pedigree.">
According to VCF specifications: "The ‘Flag’ type indicates that the INFO field does not contain a Value entry, and hence the Number should be 0 in this case." I don't know how strictly this is usually enforced though.
Related: I tried to use the "Contact GIAB" page instead but it shows an error.
A very good article on the PGP issue and I've done an extensive research to withhold the truth about the subject. Thanks for the share.

This has just been fixed!
Yes -- the readme file is not in a plain text format!
Thanks for this great resources. I don't know if you have any control over the NCBI ftp site, but the README.GIAB.v0.2.txt file appears to be garbled in some way. Best, Steve
