That's not actually what "distributed" means. There are several distributed SCM tools[1] that store repo information outside the actual working directory.

Perhaps that last sentence could be something like "This means that each developer has a local full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access to a central server." I'm sure there are better wordings, but I hate to point out an problem without offering at least one possible improvement.


[1] I believe that ArX, monotone, codeville, and svk all fall into this category. Possibly even Arch itself, although I haven't researched that.
