I'm not sure, but I think it's updated whenever we make a new release.

On GuixSD, `info guix` should work. On other systems...

... from a checkout of our Git repo, you can do:

`guix environment guix -- make doc/`

Similarly, you can do `make doc/guix.html`.

If the Git checkout is new, you will need to run the ./configure script
first. And if so, you almost always want to do it like this:

`./configure --localstatedir=/var`.
