There are a number of types of cranes subtagged with crane:type=
The most common are

crane:type=portal_crane 900
crane:type=Container_crane 474
crane:type=Gantry_crane 282

Also, the wiki page mention:

Mobile or temporary construction cranes are not supposed to be mapped.

Tomasz-W has kindly provided some icons so that openstreetmap-carto can
start rendering man_made=crane.

Which of these tags describe truelyndifferent types of cranes? The
Wikipedia page about gantry cranes suggests that portal crane is a synonym,
and that ship-to-shore container cranes are also usually gantry/portal

Is anyone an expert or enthusiast on this subject?
