What is the 'intellij_project' folder for?

In a Java project, I find that there are a .idea folder and a intellij_project folder.  I understand that .idea holds the meta-information of the project.  What is the intellij_project folder for?  Should it be committed to VCS?

What files does it contain? Was your project imported from Eclipse or generated using some third-party tools?

Stock IDEA doesn't create this folder, unless someone has specified to use this folder for certain files when creating this project or modules.

Indeed it was a custom created folder.
