If this is the only differences please tell me what problem do you have
with the approved diet:gluten_free= and what are the advantages of

Otherwise we end up with two duplicates and should stick to
the approved one.

I am sorry, you are right. I should have talked about my intension
before making the change. I thought no one has a problem with cleaning
up this issue.

I have no problem in reverting my changes but please give me one reason

changeset now only to have a bot redo it in a week.

Once more, sorry
