How do I run ignition gazebo distributed (server on one machine, GUI on another)?

I'm trying to figure out how to run ignition gazebo -s shapes.sdf on one machine, and ignition gazebo -gon another (both hosts on the same LAN). I've found the tutorial at, but it's pretty terse. I tried this: ign gazebo -s --network-role=primary --network-secondaries=1 --distributed shapes.sdf, but it fails with

Traceback (most recent call last):
    2: from /usr/bin/ign:267:in `<main>'
    1: from /usr/lib/ruby/ignition/cmdgazebo3.rb:324:in `execute'
/usr/lib/ruby/ignition/cmdgazebo3.rb:310:in `parse': invalid option: --distributed (OptionParser::InvalidOption)

I'm running Citadel on Ubuntu 18.

I get the impression that the docs are a little rough. Any suggestions on where to look for more documentation or examples?

Bump. Has nobody tried this?
