You should not be editing this file. Not because of a immediate
problem, but because the next upgrade will overwrite it.

You have to create the lists/<listname>/en directory if you want per
list custom templates. It isn't there by default.

You also have to create the templates/<list.host_name>/en (for domain
wide templates) and/or templates/site/en (for sitewide templates)
directories if you want to use them. See
for the order in which these are searched.
