gitignore.txt: change "folder" to "directory"

We prefer "directory" over "folder" when discussing the file system
concept. Change this instance for consistency -- indeed, even within
this paragraph, we already use "directory".

EXAMPLES
--------
- The pattern `hello.*` matches any file or folder
- The pattern `hello.*` matches any file or directory
whose name begins with `hello.`. If one wants to restrict
this only to the directory and not in its subdirectories,
one can prepend the pattern with a slash, i.e. `/hello.*`;
