Since the XBMC Foundation is a US registered not-for-profit it needs to keep books. As far as I know they are publicly viewable and quite boring.
Donation money is principally used to fund the yearly developer conference and attendance of open source conferences. All money is accounted for.
I just noticed that nero12 said this. We actually plan to eventually "wiki-fy" accounting records and other stuff, eventually. It's just as Kibje says, boring :P
It's all accounted for, because if we didn't then the IRS would probably come after us. Something like that.
It's also fairly straight forward. X amount of money goes to conferences like SCALE in California, US, or LinuxTag in Germany. Y goes to servers and stuff for websites. Z goes to hardware for developers working on stuff.
Q goes to hookers and blow.
Stuff like that.
So yeah, expect those kinds of things to be more accessible in the near-future.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki)
, [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki)
, [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki)
, [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki)
