Indeed, it's incompatible as both licenses require derivatives to be
under the same license.
It's a bit silly to use CC for software as it was not intended for
that, but it's their choice.

EIther way, CC-BY-SA though GPL incompatible is however fully free and
respects all four freedoms so there is no reason it cannot be included
or distributed together - provided it's code is kept under it's own
