At https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/exceptions, for some of the listed exceptions information is provided on how to import it.
For example: "The UnreadablePostError is raised when a user cancels an upload. It is available from django.http."
For others though (e.g. https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/exceptions/#noreversematch) there isn't clear explicit information about where to get them from.
Also, when the information is provided, it's not always provided consistently.
My suggestion is that each section (Database Exceptions, Http Exceptions and so on) there should begin with a paragraph on its own: Core exceptions are provided in django.core.exceptions, Database exceptions are provided in django.db and so on.
FInally, Django-specific Exceptions seems a bit of a misnomer, since others not in that section are also Django-specific. Calling them Core exceptions would seem to make more sense.
