Based on the following site...

"One thing to know is that the space in the /boot partition is extremely limited at the moment, and cannot be easily re-sized, as it will freak out WebOS Doctor and may create other issues. Unless and until the /boot partition can be extended, this size limitation will affect the number of OSes that can be squeezed onto the TouchPad at one time."
How does this affect/react with your 5GB cm-data size?
i think /boot is a webOS partition and not a CM partition. i haven't tried it, but increasing the size of the partitions shouldn't kill webOS. The problem is that when you use 3.0.0 doctor, it resizes partitions back to their original size. resizing CM partitions is safe, CWM restore, etc... isn't partition size specific. resizing the media partition that's the SDCARD, common between webOS and CM, doesn't do anything either. but all the other webOS partitions seem to be picky about size when webOS Doctoring. but i'm pretty sure you could upsize a partition after you webOS doctor and it'd be just fine and webOS wouldn't throw a fit or anything. i think the main developers just won't do it because it'll cause a headache since a lot of people trying to install CM/android with webOS don't really know what we're doing until we've done it. lmao.
the only reason I even bothered with resizing CM partitions in the first place is because of the SDCARD issue that occurs when you've moved too many apps onto your SDCARD. it starts remounting at random. then it doesn't mount at all once you reached the high limit which a lot of folks have said 30/50 not sure which is it. But i ran into this issue, and i was like WTH. You have a 32GB SDCARD why can't you just have a 5-8GB /cm-data partition so you can just simply not need to move any apps to SD and avoid the whole friggen problem. it's not like there's actually "internal" storage. it's all just partitions on the same physical SD anyways. so I started playing with file system. and came up with this.
8GB seemed to be too much for the /cm-data for me cause i still had way too much space free after I installed all my apps and games. 5GB seems to be the perfect number for me. Allows for all apps to be installed and still have space for temp web storage/cache on the /cm-data partition.
