Fresh install with .htaccess and htaccess?!

I just did a fresh install of NextCloud and discovered that there are in app/data a .htaccess file and a htaccess file.
Both are filled with config but totally different and as far as I know the htaccess version (without .) shouldn't work.
Why is this difference?
On Nextcloud, the data directory is
/app/data. In hindsight, this was a mistake and it should ideally be
/app/data/datadirectoryor something. We tried to fix this long ago, but it was complicated since nextcloud complains if you change the data directory, so we left it as-is.
Because of the above quirk, there are two htaccess files. One for the data directory itself (
.htaccess) and one for the code directory (
When we eventually move the data directory to be a subdirectory, the
.htaccesswill move with it.
