It allows you to use your own Git management tools (Github, git.drupal.org, etc.) to follow your own branching strategy.

    Hello everyone, I know how to get a slidshow with one image in it, but I would like to have a slideshow banner which has several images displayed side by side at the same time and the images rotates from left to right. Is it possible someone can point me to the right direction or do a quick demo? Thanks and your help is much appreciated.
