It's a bit redundant - anything that can go in a <Directory> can also go
in a <Location>, so you could simplify things, eg:

<VirtualHost 10.1.1.103:80>
   ServerName yumrepo.s0
   DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/yum"
   <Location />
      AllowOverride None
      Options Indexes
      Order Allow,Deny
      Allow from all>    
  </Location>
</VirtualHost>

Having said that, I'm not entirely sure why <Location /> overrides the
welcome.conf snippet while <Directory "/var/www/html/yum"> in the same
place doesn't... Maybe to do with the order apache parses Location and
Directory containers...

Rgds,
