" Sure, January 2nd was in fact a working day "
Not really - January 2nd was a Saturday.
Monday 4th would be many people's first day back after Christmas.

 You're not supposed to know who goes on vacation when, and we can't really tell you. So you have to apply some common sense. Sure, January 2nd was in fact a working day in most or all countries where VirtualBox developers are located. But it's not exactly unusual for people to take vacation around Christmas/New Year.

 Basically you had about the worst possible timing. This was the one time of the year when more or less everybody is gone. So just remember to not expect quick answers roughly between Christmas and Epiphany (aka Three Kings' Day, Jan 6th).

And how am I supposed to know this? In the country where I live (Slovakia), working days begin from 2nd of January. Is there any timeline for vacations so I know this the next time before I post a question? Thanks.
