I think the comment someone else made about getting a feel for
their development process is spot-on. You want to find out if
it's orderly enough to quote them a fixed price for writing, one or two rounds of review and then release, or if it's chaotic and
the project will require multiple unplanned changes that are best quoted by the hour.

I have a shot at taking on some consulting work (which I find quite
interesting!). I'm going to meet with the reps from this company tonight,
and am looking for a bit of advice as to what specific questions to ask.
