Others can comment better (I am still a yum novice) but I think you can
break the problem into two parts.

1)Building and maintaining the yum repository, and
2)Providing the repository to your network

Could you not build (yum-arch) the repository from a RH/FC station and
target a NFS share on the Debian Server.

After that the standard Debian services (ftp/http/nfs) could be used to
provide the repository to your network.

This should not require any updates to your Woody.
