[New-bugs-announce] [issue32476] Add concat functionality to ElementTree xpath find

New submission from John Jolly <jjolly at suse.com>:
The current implementation of the xpath specification in ElementTree does not allow for predicates that may contain both an apostrophe and a quote. Either one or the other is allowed, but escaping (either string escaping using the backslash or html escaping) is not supported.
A simple solution would be to implement the xpath concat function for predicates. This would allow the combination of quote types in the predicate. Attached is a proposed patch for this fix.
