CASTOR PUBLIC root protocol - phase out (NOW COMPLETED)

We are planning to phase out the root protocol to access CASTOR after the 3rd of February 2014 (protocol will also be discontinued on future ROOT versions). Our statistics showed that 10% of accesses to CASTOR are still using root protocol and we would like to ask the users to start the transition from *root* protocol to *xroot* protocol.
