Github user afine commented on the issue:

    @asutosh936 I agree with @anmolnar That directory exists, it is currently in version control,
and I don't think any generated files actually end up there. My guess is that it is there
purely for historical reasons and to contain the rcc.jj file.
    In other words, I don't think your change to the gitignore will impact that directory.
According to the gitignore documentation (https://git-scm.com/docs/gitignore):
    > If the pattern does not contain a slash /, Git treats it as a shell glob pattern
and checks for a match against the pathname relative to the location of the .gitignore file
(relative to the toplevel of the work tree if not from a .gitignore file).
    Since there are not any top level files called `generated` I don't think this line in
the gitignore has any impact on the repository. Am I missing something here?
