    The comment right above you has a solid point.
    I just updated my sources in Terminal and it only downloaded 76 KB. I guess it depends on how much new stuff there is though.

    Definitely, and then multiply that reasonably tiny amount by the 23M total devices that were recorded jailbroken in the past month or so, and you get a relatively large number:

    Saurik: 14M iOS 6 Devices Are Currently Running Cydia

    Of course, that's not to say that all 23M people are refreshing at the same time, or that all those devices are as active as the last, but the bandwidth sure will add up significantly.

    But this is only for new jailbreaks. It's not like 23M people are going to be using this version. Probably a lot less than 1 million. Of course it was a good idea to include the package lists before those 16 million used Evasi0n. I just don't see the point since there isn't a big rush of people jailbreaking right now.

    As said in the article, people who are already jailbroken don't need this version.

    All the people currently jailbroken are still able to refresh their sources in Cydia, so they also account for bandwidth for repository servers.

    These preventative steps are baby steps for keeping the servers from being swamped. Yes, the jailbreak has been out for a while now. But assured, traffic is still reaching high levels.

    Remove all the unnecessary third party repositories.
