Implementation of multi-indexes instead of an indiscrimate aggregate index
Creation of 5 sections under Indexes chapter for the most relevant lists of index entries:
namelist blocks and parameters, CPP keys, modules and subroutines.

• indexes.tex & index.ist: new file in global directory for index management
• Add symbolic links under main to non-existing *.idx before LaTeX compilation to reduce trivial error messages with makeindex
• Create latexmkrc init file loaded latexmk with '-r' option in order to apply the style rules to the indexes with the sequence of several compilations

Other changes:

• Define a preamble.tex with the list of files to load from global folder
• Integrate 'Citation' subsubsection in new info_page.tex for the 2nd page along with 'frontpage.tex' for the cover, in order to have a clear distinction with \maketitle in the main LaTeX document
• Move 'Foreword' chapter from subfiles to main as more appropriate

Bugfixes with few attempts of HTML export

• One single location for defining the paths to search for images with \graphicspath in packages.tex
• Renaming of authors variables (\1stauthor\firstauthor and so one)
• Update of LaTeX dependencies in terms of new pkgs (DEPS)

6The ocean engine of NEMO (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean) is a primitive equation model adapted to
7regional and global ocean circulation problems.
8It is intended to be a flexible tool for studying the ocean and its interactions with the others components of
9the earth climate system over a wide range of space and time scales.

[10496]11Prognostic variables are the three-dimensional velocity field, a non-linear sea surface height,
12the \textit{Conservative} Temperature and the \textit{Absolute} Salinity.
13In the horizontal direction, the model uses a curvilinear orthogonal grid and in the vertical direction,
14a full or partial step $z$-coordinate, or $s$-coordinate, or a mixture of the two.
15The distribution of variables is a three-dimensional Arakawa C-type grid.
16Various physical choices are available to describe ocean physics, including TKE, and GLS vertical physics.

[10496]18Within NEMO, the ocean is interfaced with a sea-ice model (SI$^3$)
19 %or \href{https://github.com/CICE-Consortium/CICE}{CICE}),
20passive tracer and biogeochemical models (TOP-PISCES) and,
21via the \href{https://portal.enes.org/oasis}{OASIS} coupler, with several atmospheric general circulation models.
22It also support two-way grid embedding via the \href{http://agrif.imag.fr}{AGRIF} software.
