What you're talking about is remote access and possibly offline
preparation of bug reports.
When people say distributed in terms of version control, they're talking
about a system that has no central repository; just lots of peers, like a
p2p system. In particular, they're talking about a system where each
peer can be a completely self-sufficient branch, looking after it's own
new features, bugs, etc., until it's all accepted into another (so-called
upstream) branch and merged.
