Nice initiative with Rubidium, saving time is the way!

I wonder how the 'Templates' are compared to 'Generators' in Rails. In our company we have a ton of custom stuff (like overrides for Active Admin, model concerns etc) that we use for each end every project. So we've created a template Git repository with all of the project structure in place. And we clone this repo to start a new project. This template also has a Rails Generator that asks for a project name, replaces it in certain files, creates databases and runs db seeds.
It feels like all that is done through the Generator can be done using Templates. So what's the real difference between them? :)
