Reputation is based on votes by logged in people. There will be an up arrow
and a down arrow on revisions.

Personally, I believe the best solution would be to have reputation be a
field on revisions that gets copied (from the last revision) when a new
revision is created for the same submission. But after the new revision is
created, it is no longer linked to the past revision (so both of them can
be voted separately).
