    In a future delivery, it might be good to have a feature that returns the view text to
the user instead of requiring a read of the TEXT table.    For example, an option to showddl
that returns "invalid views". The person fixing up the views may not have SELECT privilege
on the system metadata tables.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
