Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Nightly
2. Help > About Nightly


Actual Results:
35MB - 45MB/each update

Expected Results:
10MB/each update or less
For example, extracting from my updates.xml file, the most recent 10 Nightly updates had these sizes for the Win64 platform and the en-US language:

   Build-ID     Partial   Complete  ->  Partial  Complete
                Size (B)  Size (B)       Size      Size
--------------  --------  --------      -------  --------
20180210220139  40281928  45353635  ->  38.4 MB  43.3 MB
20180211100408  32112120  45390035  ->  30.6 MB  43.3 MB
20180211220056  40326256  45397963  ->  38.5 MB  43.3 MB
20180212100154  28660952  45387051  ->  27.3 MB  43.3 MB
20180212220112  40299558  45333147  ->  38.4 MB  43.2 MB
20180213100127  40453504  45525487  ->  38.6 MB  43.4 MB
20180213220104  32222984  45504379  ->  30.7 MB  43.4 MB
20180214111549  40508416  45580399  ->  38.6 MB  43.5 MB
20180214220040  40543442  45577031  ->  38.7 MB  43.5 MB
20180214224814    n/a     45518175  ->    n/a    43.4 MB

Before a week ago the partials were usually in the 6 MB to 9 MB range, not in the 38 MB area.
Also getting large updates on Linux.

Today's was 41.7 MB. The full installer is 63.7 MB

I've noticed this as well.

Simon, would you mind taking a look?

Mea culpa, I'd missed an implied return value in a shell script, and hadn't made it explicit when adding some commands after the one that generates the return value.
