git ignore files do not need to ignore ignoring themselves
To ensure the dir exists with git, a file is required - but it can be completely empty. Since the git ignore file is already in the repo it is not necessary to not-ignore it - it is already tracked. Though trivial these !.gitignore files are being understood by some to mean that they must contain this exact syntax to ensure an empty folder exists.
