Don't include the name of the package in the short description. Also,
"HTTP/1.1 protocol" is more something for the long description.

Description: light-weight web server

The language the server is written in is not important.  Use the debtags
system to annotate the package with that kind of information. Also,
don't use subjective wording like "nice features". There are also too
much capitals in your description. I suggest the following:

 Monkey is a small, fast, and easily configurable HTTP/1.1 compliant web
 server. It uses multi-threading and has support for MIME, virtual
 hosts, CGI and PHP. It offers basic security features, such as denying
 access to certain URLs for certain IP addresses.
