Goes into the Arabeyes PayPal account? Which can from there be withdrawn
directly into my bank account.

Sure -- We've already	talked about this though, and have already said that all
receipts, transactions, etc. will be publically available. RE-re-re-read the
Arabeyes charter/manifesto/whatever ;) 

What I would like to discuss with all of you is gonig to be more of, how
exactly do we show this? As in, do we simply archive the
'contribute at arabeyes dot org' mail? Do we scan receipts as well, or restrict
purchases to online, so we can keep it all text? etc.

There is no question about the transparency. Also keep in mind that there is
an element of trust here. You will simply have to trust that I will be
responsible for handling the money (call it, 'Treasurer' ;)).
