Put into someday maybe. Or just put the thing that is what is now blocking this project as the next action with a note of waiting for and set the context to waiting for.

My own someday maybe list in Omnifocus is sorted by area of focus. So I have S/M things for each of my major areas. In OF I just select the project and change it to on hold to move it. At weekly review time I scrub my active list by moving the on-hold projects into a separate folder under each AOF that is labeled "area" Someday So I have an area of focus Sheep Work and within that I have a Sheep Someday for all my potential sheep projects. An example right now is make black wool show halters for sheep. A few months ago it was active and I was spinning black yarn to make rope. Got the yarn spun but now things are too busy so the actual making of the rope didn't happen and I know I won't get to that project until late summer so I put it on hold for now.
