    services: hpcguix-web: Set SSL_CERT_DIR.
    Previously Git pulls over HTTPS would fail with:
      guix/git.scm:132:7: In procedure update-cached-checkout:
      Throw to key `git-error' with args `(#<<git-error> code: -17 message: 
"the SSL certificate is invalid" class: 16>)'.
    * gnu/services/web.scm (hpcguix-web-shepherd-service): Pass
    * doc/guix.texi (Web Services): Mention certificates.

address@hidden Note
+The hpcguix-web service periodically updates the package list it publishes by
+pulling channels from Git.  To that end, it needs to access X.509 certificates
+so that it can authenticate Git servers when communicating over HTTPS, and it
+assumes that @file{/etc/ssl/certs} contains those certificates.
+Thus, make sure to add @code{nss-certs} or another certificate package to the
address@hidden field of your configuration.  @ref{X.509 Certificates}, for
+more information on X.509 certificates.
