#23685: Explicitly globalize version variables
 Reporter:  nbachiyski       |       Type:  defect (bug)
   Status:  new              |   Priority:  normal

 When WordPress is loaded in a function (e.g. unit tests) the variables
 initialized at the top level aren't globals, but we expect them to be.

 For example, if in a unit test there is no way to access `$wp_version`.
 Neither via `$wp_version` (it's not in the same scope), not via
 `$GLOBALS['wp_version']` (it's not a global).

 To fix that we need to explicitly make the version variables global.

 See #17749.
