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.

According to my daughter, who also works for Oracle, vacation during the week 
between Christmas and New Year's Day was mandatory for most Oracle employees. 
Her group was able to keep a few working to service their clients, but most had 
to take the time off.

My condolences to the VB group for their forced vacation when they probably did 
not want to take it.
