Enabling a repo doesn't start a build

So I created a repo, added my .drone.yml file, and then went into my web interface and switched it on. It doen’t seem that the repo will do an initial build, but will rather wait for the first commit before doing anything. This results in me having to make some sort of dummy commit to get the first build to run. Kind of annoying and it would be nice if it would build automatically in this case.
