You do not need this bootstrap option either.  Once your configurations
are loaded into zookeeper, nothing further is needed - the information
is there.

This is expected, because the bootstrap options (especially
bootstrap_conf) are not intended for extended use.

SolrCloud doesn't use conf directories.  All that is in zookeeper.  The
bootstrap options are one way of converting configurations from
non-SolrCloud to SolrCloud.  Once that's done, it does not need to be
done again.

The other way of converting and maintaining SolrCloud configuration
information, which in my opinion is better, is with the zkcli utility
included in example/cloud-scripts.

This is the definition that most closely describes what bootstrapping
means with respect to SolrCloud.  Solr is not a development environment,
but the general notion applies:
