Please, tell me the difference between gluten_free=* and
diet:gluten_free=* and document them in the wiki.

We are talking about 50 objects.

No, as this pages should have never been created. As diet:gluten_free=*
was approved over a year before the other pages where created. I did not
find any discussion about these tags on this list nor any proposal. All
I did was to move the pages to a proposal namespace and highlighted the
approved tag to use.

I will change diet:lacto_free to diet:diary_free cause of different reason.

I did just add one tag to the objects with the same meaning. Thought
that is the way to silently move from one tag to another. I did not
delete anything. What is your problem with diet:gluten_free ?

Please do not get me wrong. I just wanted to straighten out a tagging
duplication before the usage grows on both sides.
