 +This page is dedicated to collect the needs for new ocean diagnostics from the users. You can add any request you need.
 +This is a open page that is meant to evolve and to gather as many comments, discussions,​ feedback as possible.
 +This is also the place to share your experience about ocean_pp.bash/​common_ocean_post.txt.

 +Your comments/​feedback about the ocean_pp/​common_ocean_post scripts:

 +What do you think about the splitting of ocean_pp.bash into ocean_pp.bash and a configuration file ?
 +VG : I think there is potential loss for the user of the overview of the very large set of functionalities
 +with such a splitting. Indeed, for a new user, selecting the basic default option in the config file is enough
 +to monitor his/her experiment with some common indexes. But for an advanced user, ocean_pp.bash is a loop over
 +the set of default option and a function of common_ocean_post.txt is called under each option with a given set of 
 +arguments. Those arguments can easily be changed to get slightly different diagnostics or indexes. For example,
 +the vert_Tsection option selects currently 6 vertical temperature sections at default locations but an
 +advanced user could get a vertical section at any location by changing the arguments of the call to cutsection.
 +In short, I think if the user does not see the ocean_pp script anymore, this script will be used as a black
 +box and the modularity allowed by the call to independent functions from common_ocean_post.txt might get lost.
