Doc/tools/extensions/ failed multiple times on my doc PR:

The fail is not deterministic (random error, timing issue?), it depends if the directory was already created by something else or not.

Error on the Docs PR job of the Azure Pipeline:

Error on Travis CI:
PATH=./venv/bin:$PATH sphinx-build -b html -d build/doctrees  -q -W -j4 -W . build/html 

Extension error:

Handler <function on_build_finish at 0x7f6ed4c6abf8> for event 'build-finished' threw an exception (exception: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/travis/build/python/cpython/Doc/build/html/_static/glossary.json')

Makefile:49: recipe for target 'build' failed

Attached PR fix the extension: create the directory if it doesn't exists.

Python 3.9 is not affected, this Sphinx extension is new in Python 3.10. By the way, I like this feature!
