This "template" folder contains templates and associates scripts to generate standard repository files such as README.md and LICENSE. This is primarily used by the author to ensure consistency across repositories and can safely be ignored by most end users and contributors.
If you do desire to use or process templates in this folder make sure you have cloned the git repository at https://git.lenzplace.org/lenzj/repo-template. The cloned "repo-template" respository should ideally exist one level outside this repository root. I.E. ../repo-template
Once this is in place you can regenerate the documents from templates using the following command from the main repository folder:
$ make regenDocMain
