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
able to upgrade their virtual hardware as well. The only non-obsoleted
patch in bug#664774  allows you to change RAM and storage allocation.

We added a new tab in the 'Properties' view as shown here:

These are the new translatable strings:

1. "RAM"
2. "Storage"
3. "System"
3. "Changes require restart of '%s'. Attempt restart?"

Feel free to ask for more information, if needed.
