Pre-implementation of new cover page and new headings style for reference manuals

#### Cover page

The layout of the frontpage has been completely redesigned,
a coloured banner has been added to emphasize the title and easily identify each manual
between them.
The chosen color for each document (blue for NEMO, gray for SI3 and green for TOP) will be
used throughout the manual for the links and in the chapter headings.
The list of authors (writers/editors/reviewers) for the version of the manual is given next to
the abstract, which is now included in the frontpage.
A link to an existing ORCID profile for the author precedes its name.
Few settings have been added to each definitions.tex in order to adjust the rendering of the cover page (vertical spaces above and below the title, a subtitle, the width for authors list and
abstract section)

• header: chapter number and title for even pages, same infos for section otherwise
• footer: name of the manual and page numbering with the total number of pages (reverse order between odd/even pages)

For the chapter heading, a new style 'Bjornstrup' from fncychap package is now use.

#### Abstract

Split the section in two paragraphs for all manuals

1. Common description with almost the same sentences only customized by the general infos of the model
2. Specific part for the characteristics of the model

#### Troubleshooting

As announced, I have introduced some icons from academicons and fontawesome packages.
It required to switch from pdflatex to xelatex for the compilation and it prevents from now
the building of the whole document.
Also the PDF generated does not look nice due to the font

Work in progress…

 r11181 %% ================================================================ %% Abstract %% ================================================================ %% Common part between NEMO-SI3-TOP Sea Ice Modelling Integrated Initiative'' (\SIcube) is the sea ice engine of the \NEMO\ ocean model (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean''). It is intended to be a flexible tool for studying the sea ice dynamics and thermodynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations (white ocean''), as well as its interactions with the other components of the Earth climate system over a wide range of space and time scales. \SIcube\ is interfaced with the \NEMO\ ocean engine, and, via the \href{http://portal.enes.org/oasis}{OASIS} coupler, with several atmospheric general circulation models. It also supports two-way grid embedding by means of the \href{http://agrif.imag.fr}{AGRIF} software. %% Specific part Designed for global to regional applications up to $~$10 km of effective resolution, \SIcube\ is a curvilinear grid, finite-difference implementation of the classical AIDJEX model (Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint EXperiment), combining the conservation of momentum for viscous-plastic continuum, energy and salt-conserving halo-thermodynamics, an explicit representation of subgrid-scale ice thickness variations, snow and melt ponds. An option to switch back to the \textit{single-category} (or \textit{2-level}) framework provides a cheap sea ice modelling solution.
