Re: What is the difference between GenesisFile and BootstrapFile?

This is a renaming. They were renamed since the 'provisional' GenesisMethod of generating the system channel for orderers was removed, and we now expect users to use the method of generating a genesis block using configtxgen to bootstrap the orderer. Though I believe we still support either, the first set is deprecated and users should use the new names to prevent surprises in the future when the legacy names are removed.
