Guys, thank you for all the replies. To be honest, I haven't thought to 
recieve any answer for such a question.

Thank you for the clarification; my timing was purely accidental. I 
asked because it was already after the holidays and I wanted to be sure 
that my question will not remain unanswered. Also, I didn't knew whether 
there are some developers working during the holidays (e.g. at home). 
There are passionate people working even during those days.

P.S.: I'm still getting those "dating scam emails" which I mentioned on 
the forums, however, I failed to mention that they were initiated from 
"darisugawara at yahoo.com" (see <https://u.pomf.is/ushqlo.png>). If you 
can, please ban this user from the mailing list so no more users will be 
bothered again. Thanks again.

There are people working even during Saturdays though likely not on 2nd 
of January. It didn't occur to me when I wrote my reply.
