Do not maintain an empty default geodatabase from a project template in ArcGIS Pro

    When creating a new project utilizing a project template in ArcGIS Pro, 2 geodatabases are generated; one from the original project the project template was created from, and one for the new project being created. In many cases, the project that is used to build the project template is more or less a shell and will have an empty default/home geodatabase. We propose that if that default/home geodatabase is empty, that it not persist in future projects created using the project template. Leaving it as it is, users can easily end up with a bunch of unnecessary geodatabases when trying to utilize project templates to attempt to standardize various projects.
