Makes git look like it handles empty directories.
Add "bin" to your "$PATH" before git's location (which bin/git expects to be "/usr/bin", but you can change that easily).
git-status will now remind you of directories which are untracked because they're empty. Track them by doing "git add/.gitkeep", like my git-status says.
You can then commit your addition and the file will hide forever. And I don't mean "hidden" because its name begins with a dot, it really won't be there to clutter your filesystem. You can delete it (and the folder it protects) by using "git-rm".
The ".gitkeep" files will show up in git-archive's tarballs. Use the provided "tar-stripkeep" to get rid of them.
