What I noticed is, that the keyboard xml files are not shared from themes/default/keyboard, they have to be copied in the theme directory.
Also noticed some naming oddities, in from themes/default/keyboard, a de.xml file exists, for me it only worked when coping them as de_de.xml.
The same goes for de_ui.xml vs. de_de_ui.xml.
