[ensembl-dev] How is Identity calculated?

In a list of orthologs computed by EnsemblCompara, Ensembl computes both
the Target %id and Query %id.

I suspect very much that this is the case of the number of identities being
divided by the length of the target or query sequence, but I'm curious as
to whether this includes the gaps that arise from the MSA?

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
