Capslock and keyboard layout indicator for plymouths diskcrypt password screen  
As some of you running Fedora 31 may already have noticed, I have some good news to share. As part of my recent work on plymouth I've implemented a feature request which was first requested in 2012: support for an indicator that capslock is active while entering the disk unlock password for machines using full diskencryption. Besides the capslock indicator I've also added support for an indicator of the configured keyboard layout, since this sometimes also causes confusion:



And here is what it looks like when capslock is pressed:



If you're running Fedora 31 with full diskencryption then you may notice that the above screenshots are slightly different then what you have now. I've pushed an update to Fedora 31 updates-testing today which implements a few small tweaks to the theme after feedback from the design-team on the initial version. For those of you still on Fedora 30, this is coming to Fedora 30 too, it should show up in updates-testing with the next updates push.
