1  These values come from fixing the vector form factor at the CVC prediction, ${{\mathit F}_{{V}}}$ = $0.0259$ $\pm0.0005$.
2  When $\mathit F_{V}$ is released, the BYCHKOV 2009 $\mathit F_{A}$ is $0.0117$ $\pm0.0017$, and $\mathit F_{A}$ and $\mathit F_{V}$ results are highly (anti-)correlated: $\mathit F_{A}$ + 1.0286 $\mathit F_{V}$ = $0.03853$ $\pm0.00014$.
3  The sign of ${{\mathit \gamma}}$ = ${{\mathit F}_{{A}}}$ /${{\mathit F}_{{V}}}$ is determined to be positive.
4  Only the absolute value of $\mathit F_{\mathit A}$ is determined.
5  The result of STETZ 1978 has a two-fold ambiguity. We take the solution compatible with later determinations.
