This is the second RfC since the first one got no comments
(https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2016-September/030292.html).

The tag building=carport is used for one carport building. The carport
might provide more than one parking space. It is not necessary that
the carport is currently used for vehicle parking, the tag only
describes the building type.

A carport is distinctive enough from building=garage and building=roof
so that an own tag should be used. The plural (like building=garages)
is not defined since all wide carports I could find can be classified
as one structure. The key building=* is used since a carport is a type
of building=roof.

Add amenity=parking/motorcycle_parking/bicycle_parking +
building=carports to mark the parking facility. If there are multiple
carports at a parking site add the tags to an area surrounding them.
These tags are usually not necessary for private parking.

There are already 2‚ÄČ183 ways tagged with building=carport.
