In the latest snapshot of 20w07a, Hoglins were given their proper AI and now attack the player. Additionally, the ability to breed them with Crimson Fungi was added.
Since Hoglins are aggressive toward the player, it can be a bit challenging to breed them! So I propose some way to temporarily pacify them. However, I must iterate again that this is temporary because if the Hoglins were tamable for example, it would take away the hostile environment the nether is supposed to be. But since Hoglins are one of the only food sources in the nether excluding the rare mushroom stew, they should be semi-easily farmable as well.
My proposition is that when you feed a Hoglin a Warped Fungi, they will not attack any player for 30 seconds. In game, Hoglins actually run away from Warped Fungi as if they are scared of it, perhaps they're scared of it because it has some kind of sedative or calming effect on them?
This way, players could more easily farm the Hoglin, but still tread carefully around them.
