#8116 defines a specific exception for when included templates doesn't exist (IncludedTemplateDoesNotExist). The reason for that is that otherwise, the normal TemplateDoesNotExist is swallowed by django.template.loader.select_template.

While there's no any problem with TemplateDoesNotExist being raised when an extended template doesn't exist, it could maybe be beneficial to raise a more specific exception, I don't know.

django.template.loader.select_template doesn't swallow TemplateDoesNotExist since ​https://github.com/django/django/commit/e2f06226ea4a38377cdb69f2f5768e4e00c2d88e so there is no need for IncludedTemplateDoesNotExist, so we don't have any reason to change the class hierarchy of template exceptions.
