because the GPLv3 has an explicit clause that says the code can be used in an AGPLv3 project.

in fact, both licenses have to contain such an explicit concession to
each other for the one-way compatibility to work.

the resulting combo will be AGPL overall


it's also worth mentioning that this doesn't mean the non-AGPL parts
get re-licensed for the new project. it's only the whole combination
that is AGPL, and the GPL(v2+|v3) components' licenses stay as they were.

i get the feeling that this has been poorly misunderstood, historically. compatibility is often equivocated with relicense-ability.
