if the short description is intended to be the one of your package, it
is far too long. First of all, you do not need to repeat the package
name at the beginning of the description. Then, you can replace the long
list of operating systems by saying that ChessDB is multi-platform. As a
result, you would have something like:

Description: multi-platform chess database

Then our users would know that they can invite their friends to use the
same program on their favorite computer. Also, since the package would
be in main, it is obvious that it is free.

For the long description, you do not need to re-iterate the short
description. How about listing the most important main features instead?
