Ah you need a summary in the mail, sure! Here goes:
While Boxes allocates resources to new VMs automatically for you, it
doesn't always do the right job there (especially if OS is unknown or
we don't know the recommended/minimum resources for it). Moreover, as
Jon pointed out people do upgrade their hardware so they should be

patch in bug#664774 allows you to change RAM and storage allocation.
