[Bug-wget] the gnu.org wget manual

After looking at the manual for wget while online here "https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html";, I created the following command to download it:

wget --secure-protocol=auto --convert-links --page-requisites --append-output=c:\logging\wget\wget.log --server-response --read-timeout=600 www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html

The command failed and the log explained that it could not verify the CA certificate from Gandi. I looked at the Gandi site to see about downloading it, but I couldn't find any link for it. Then I sent an email to the webmaster at "gnu.org", and he promptly responded with this link, "http://crt.gandi.net/GandiStandardSSLCA.crt";. I downloaded that certificate and let Windows install it in the default location of its choice. I am using 64-bit Win7.

I then ran the same command, but nothing different happened. Finally, I ended up changing the command by adding this option, "--no-check-certificate". This time it worked. Nevertheless, it would seem to me that I ought to be able to get, of all things, the wget manual from Gnu with a secure connection. To be honest, I have to believe that many others here likely have encountered the same issue. What part of this picture am I missing? Thanks.
