Please describe the problem.

aws-0.16 and 0.15.1 were just released. 0.16 has breaking changes.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Try to build git-annex with the S3 flag with aws-0.16.

Note that git-annex builds successfully with 0.15.1, and that 0.15 has its own problems since it constrains xml-conduit to < 1.4, which fails unless blaze-markup is also contrained to < 0.8.0.0. This is resolved by using 0.15.1 since it lifted the contraint on xml-conduit to < 1.5.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

6.20170101 on macOS

Please provide any additional information below.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Yes!
