Revolt's permission system works by sequentially applying allows then denies.

Flow Chart

Below are the high-level steps taken to determine both server and channel permissions.

If you are looking to implement permissions in a library, I highly recommend reading either revolt.js or delta source code since all the routines are well commented and should be relatively easy to understand.

ManageChannel1Manage the channel or channels on the server
ManageServer2Manage the server
