I think there's a misunderstanding here, I was just asking to Chris
whether the new column, that has to be added on the base table,

with the same value) or not.
old mv : create materialized view as select a from t_at_dblink
say you "alter table t add (new_column int default 42)"
has the mv to be logically modified to
create materialized view as select a, new_column from t_at_dblink
or does it stay the same, ignoring new_column ?
Ah, I see.
If that were the case, there's little else to do.
Adding a column to the table does not invalidate any of the
objects used for the materialized view, and it will still work
