Now that this has been brought to the d-devel attention: I have been
so far the Cherokee maintainer. Sadly, I sent out a RFA in November,
and filed a removal request a couple of days ago.

Cherokee is a very lean, very agile webserver, with a great helper for
managing configuration in a user-friendly way. I would not like to see
it be dropped from Debian, but cannot devote time to maintaining it

So, this message goes as a final help call: If you are interested in
picking up Cherokee and maintaining it, I'll be most delighted to
explain some of its bits.
