 I'm trying to access "android:versionName" in another XML resource
file. I tried to use @android/versionName and @android:versionName,
but neither work. Can anyone help me out?

 Afaik, the versionName attribute is not a string you can reference
from other resources.

However you can programatically retrieve it like this:
  PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();
  PackageInfo pi = pm.getPackageInfo(getPackageName(), 0);
  mVersion = pi.versionName;

For example I do that to dynamically inject it in my html about page.
