How do I make my Left 4 Dead server a group server?

There is a new cvar sv_steamgroup, which takes the Steam group number (visible on the group's administrative page). The server will still be part of matchmaking, but users that are in that group will be able to browse directly to it from the main menu. Also, if this value is set, there will be a button near the message of the day which allows users to go directly to that group's page. This allows users to join that group if they like, and then be able to browse back to it in the future.
