As Thomas said, Git does not track directories. For instance, you
can't `git add` an empty directory, and `git add <directory>` does only
seem to make Git track that directory because it makes Git track *files*
under that directory.
I have no idea about why Git devs picked this design choice and not
some other; I also perceive this behaviour might be confusing.
Another thing to consider is that this list is dedicated to helping
novice users. If you feel like you've found a bug or misfeature,
please feel free to bring it up on the main Git list  as Git devs
do not read the list which we're currently using for conversing.
