Please describe the problem.

With a newer version of git annex (8.20200226 vs 6.20170101) .git/annex/creds folder is not created after git annex enableremote s3 With an older version 6.20170101 creds are embedded all-right.

git annex info s3:

remote: s3
type: S3
creds: embedded in git repository (not encrypted)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

This is a bit tricky, as the remote was setup long ago, god knows with which git-annex version, but after you have an S3 remote, with embedcreds=yes:

run git annex enableremote s3 with versions 8.20200226 and 6.20170101

# version 8.20200226
$ git annex enableremote s3
$ ls .git/annex/creds
ls: cannot access '.git/annex/creds': No such file or directory

# version 6.20170101
$ git annex enableremote s3
$ ls ../release-archive__/.git/annex/creds 
<s3-UUID>

$ git annex info s3:
remote: s3
type: S3
creds: embedded in git repository (not encrypted)

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

8.20200226 and 6.20170101 Linux, Ubuntu 20.04

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)
