Issue #8297 has been updated by dunric (David Unric).


=begin
By the current documentation, Object#extend method has to (only) add instance methods of a module given as a parameter.
In the following example, the class ((*C*)) is extended with module ((*M*)).
By ((*class_variables*)) method sent to singleton class of C also did inherit class variable ((*@@xyz*)).
However when inherited ((*@@xyz*)) is accessed, ((*NameError*)) exception is raised as it is was not initialized:

 module M
   @@xyz = 123
 end
 
 M.class_variables    # [:@@xyz]
 M.class_variable_get :@@xyz    # 123 , so far so good
 
 class C
   extend M
 end
 p C.singleton_class.class_variables    # [:@@xyz]
 p C.singleton_class.class_variable_get :@@xyz # NameError exception
 
Either ((*class_variables*)) returns invalid array - ie. ((*@@xyz*)) was not inherited at all or ((*class_variable_get*)) ignores class variables inherited from module (when sent to a singleton).

Prior Ruby versions like 1.9.3p392 does not suffer this issue as Module#class_variables returns an empty array.
