I think that is the version and it still works.

The current documentation is sparse, but probably sufficient:


You could just call resolver.resolve() and then get its list of bundles 
and make copies of them...of course, this isn't truly equivalent to 
doing resolver.deploy(), since deploy() tries to be smart. Another 
approach is to record the current set of installed bundles, then do 
resolver.resolve() + resolver.deploy(), then compare the resulting set 
of bundles. Any changes can be manually downloaded from the OBR repo to 
your local directory.
