Hi Kim: I feel that the best guess would be that this outfit has had a recent bad experience with a tech writer; perhaps two. The extra caution is probably because they are afraid to make a decision or can't agree on the 'best' candidate that would fit their environment. They are waiting for the candidate to exclude themselves by error or by showing a trait they may deem undesirable. This is obviously not a matter of skills, but of personality.
Why not just ask if there is any particular issue at all that you can reassure them on?

I am interviewing for a tech writer position with a software company in
SC. I am an out of state candidate. I had the initial phone interview (in
late March) with the Doc Manager of the product group that the selected writer would support. That interview went well so I traveled to SC for the
face-to-face interview with the Doc Manager and the team leads in mid-April. I was told I was a "super-candidate" for the position and that the team would make a decision within two weeks. Well, two weeks came and went. I contacted the Doc Manager and the HR rep to get an update and to let them know I was still interested.
