How does one refer to an issue or task that remains to be done? As in the sentence: Thank you for clarifying the few remaining / outstanding issues.
Can one use outstanding or remaining in this context, or would it be better to use another adjective?

Thank you.

    Thank you, perpend, for your suggestion. Would using outstanding or remaining not be proper English? Remaining is not recognized by the dictionary of Wordreference although a Google search suggests it is in common usage.

    "Outstanding" tends to be used most often in the context of money: Your outstanding balance on your electric bill is $50. It's not wrong to use it in other contexts, just not terribly common.
